Study Spanish online in your own time with Instituto Cervantes. We are proudly introducing the AVE to Speak Spanish.
From Instituto Cervantes… “The Cervantes Institute offers the Spanish Virtual Classroom (AVE), the first platform that has contemplated, from its early planning stages, the goal of integrating Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and the teaching of Spanish in a single product. Many institutions, universities and private organizations have now incorporated the AVE into their training programs, Speak Spanish is one of them.
The AVE General Spanish Courses cover the first five levels of the Cervantes Institute’s curriculum, as well as the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, with more than 500 hours of instructional contents available for students.
The AVE is a training environment that incorporates instructional materials specifically designed for student interaction. It can be used both for on-site and semi-distance learning; the only requirement is to have a computer with an Internet connection.
The Spanish teacher arranges different group dynamics among the students, who can choose between semi-distance or distance learning, thanks to AVE communication tools: chat rooms, forums, blogs, wikis and e-mail.
The AVE includes plenty of multimedia materials, with more than 8,000 interactive activity screens and over 150 videos that show students the linguistic and cultural diversity of Spanish-speaking countries.
General Spanish courses cover levels A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 of the Cervantes Institute’s curriculum (PCIC) and the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages”.
